Red discovers a shipment of weapons onboard the Cygnus ship and goes after her for answers. Helped by the IRPO agent Fuse, they interrogate her but are unable to get satisfactory answers. When Red returns to Cygnus, the ship is attacked by pirates sent by Cindy to get rid of all evidence connecting her to Black X.

Dr. Klein

Once a respected scientist, and a colleague of Dr. Okonogi, Red's father. However, Dr. Klein decided to use his knowledge for evil, eventually becoming one of the leaders of the criminal organization Black X, developing their weapons and doing biological research. Okonogi starts investigating Klein in an attempt to stop his madness, but Klein sends Shuzer to kill him. Shuzer kills Dr. Okonogi and almost kills Red, but the hero Alkarl saves Red by turning him into the hero Alkaiser. Red uses his newfound powers to fight Black X, defeating their Four Emperors and making into Black X's base, where he confronts Dr. Klein. Klein sends his rebuilt Four Emperors to fight Alkaiser, but they are all defeated again. Boss X, the true leader of Black X, annoyed by Klein's successive failures shoves him away and decides to deal with Alkaiser for himself. Dr. Klein thought he is in control of Black X organization: He couldn't be more wrong.

Boss X

the main villain and final boss of Red's storyline in SaGa Frontier. Boss X is a strange creature on a huge robotic body, and the true leader of Black X. His past is a complete mystery. He is fought inside Black X's base, after Alkaiser defeats the Four Emperors sent by Dr. Klein. Annoyed by Klein's continuous failures on defeating Alkaiser, Boss X shoves him away and decides to fight Alkaiser by himself, but he also is defeated, and with his defeat Black X is ultimately finished as well and Red fulfilling his quest of revenge. Boss X seems to prefer to keep his leadership of Black X a secret. That said he does show a high opinion of himself by claiming he's in complete control and that he can defeat any foe he fights: a claim proved to be wrong when Red took him out.


I am the real Master of Black X. I control everything. I rule every region. You shall die!
~ Boss X
You idiot, this is your chance to beat him for good, and you're philosophizing about fairness? You'll never be the best with that kind of an attitude.
~ Dr. Klein
